Waiting On:
Title: Stranded
Author: Dani Pettrey
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: September 1st, 2013

From GoodReads
When her friend vanishes from a cruise ship, reporter Darcy St. James isn't satisfied with their explanation that she simply left her job of her own accord. Something isn't lining up, and Darcy believes the only way to find the truth is to put herself in Abby's position. Within days, Darcy learns her friend wasn't the only person to disappear mysteriously. Last summer, a woman vanished under almost identical circumstances. 

Gage McKenna has taken a summer-long stint leading adventure excursions for the passengers of various cruise lines that dock for a few days of sightseeing. He's surprised to find Darcy working aboard one of the ships, investigating a troubling report. Something sinister is going on and the deeper they dig the more Gage fears they've only discovered the tip of the iceberg.
Why I'm Waiting:
I just finished the first book of the Alaskan Courage series and I'm ready to visit the McKenna family again! I have time to read book 2, Shattered , before Stranded is due to be released.

What are you looking forward to?


  1. I can't wait for this book! I absolutely loved Submerged and Shattered and I'm so excited to read Gage and Darcy's story it sounds like it'll be so good! After you read Shattered you'll be even more anxious to read it!

  2. I haven't read any of these books before, but they look interesting!

    See what I'm waiting on.

  3. I haven't heard of this before! Sounds great though, maybe it'll be my new series!

    My WoW :)
